KAL Breakdown 

  1. Stripe-Along 2021 
    1. Details
      1. I realized that I’m down to 3 more skeins of Desert Vista Dyeworks’ stripey yarn. As I have enough stripey yarn to get through a full year if I continue knitting a pair a month, I have decided to start an Along for those who like stripes of ANY kind.
      2. This along will run all year long.
      3. I’ll be using #sdlstripealong2021 on all Social Media.
    2. Rules
      1. The rules are simple. Anything you finish in 2021 with stripes will count.
      2. You must be a member of The Silver’s Dreamland Discord or FB group. If you don’t use either, please make sure you use the Hashtag and @ me on Instagram (@silverstreats). This way I know to count your projects for this along.
      3. Colorwork, Fairisle, Stranded Colorwork, Double Knitting, and Intarsia will count, as long as the colors you use are bright and cheerful.
      4. A Few Notes: For this Along, you can enter your project multiple times. There is no need to enter the FO multiple times. As long as you notate how long it took you to complete each project, I’ll comment with the correct Post numbers.
        1. If you started and finished the project in 2021, you can enter your FOs 2 total times.
        2. If you started and finished the project in 6 months time, you can enter your FOs 3 total times.
        3. If you started and finished the project in 3 months time, you can enter your FOs 4 total times.
        4. If you started and finished the project in 2 months time, you can enter your FOs 5 total times.
        5. If you started and finished the project in 1 months time, you can enter your FOs 6 total times.
    3. Prizes
      1. Digital Prizes
        1. @Pat (loonyhiker) has offered one of her lovely patterns. You can look at her patterns on Lovecraft, or on Rav. Links will be in the shownotes, on Discord, and the box below.
      2. From West Yorkshire Spinners
        1. Fairy Lights” colorway and corresponding pattern.
      3. If anyone wishes to donate any prizes, please message me on Discord (I’m Silver Dee #8858, FB, or you can e-mail me at silversdreamland@gmail.com. I do have a few prizes in mind as of right now, but I haven’t completely decided (as I JUST now thought to put this Along together.

 

  1. Dream Along 2021 
    1. Details
      1. I’ve been dreaming of saying goodbye to 2020 something fierce lately. In an effort to literally dream 2020 away, I thought to host a new along in 2021 where I finally cast on projects I’ve been dreaming about starting. I also have been (literally) dreaming about finishing projects that I’ve had on the project for a long time. To this end, the Dream Along 2021 was born.
      2. This year will run all year.
      3. I’ll be using #sdldreameralong2021 on all Social Media.
    2. Rules
      1. The rules are simple. Anything you finish in 2021 will count.
      2. You must be a member of The Silver’s Dreamland Discord or FB group. If you don’t use either, please make sure you use the Hashtag and @ me on Instagram (@silverstreats). This way I know to count your projects for this along.
      3. The main idea I had for this Along is to Start or Finish things that have been in your Queue (weither as UFOs or things you have been dreaming of making for years and haven’t gotten up the gumption to do so before. I’m looking at you Evenstar…). However, ANYTHING you finish in 2021 will count for this Along.
      4. A Few Notes: For this Along, you can enter your project multiple times. This is based on the length of time the project has been in your Queue. There is no need to enter each FO multiple times. As long as you notate how long it’s been marinating, I’ll comment with the correct Post numbers for you.
        1. If you started or have had this in your queue more than a year, you may enter your FOs 2 total times.
        2. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 2 years, you may enter your FOs 3 total times.
        3. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 3 year, you may enter your FOs 4 total times.
        4. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 4 years, you may enter your FOs 5 total times.
        5. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 5 years, you may enter your FOs 6 total times.
        6. If you started or have had this in your queue more than 10 years (longer than I was on Rav), you may enter your FOs 10 total times.
    3. Prizes
      1. From West Yorkshire Spinners
        1. Starry Night” colorway and corresponding pattern.
      2. Louet Sonix circular needles. Size US 5, 3.75mm, 24 inch circs
      3. If anyone wishes to donate any prizes, please message me on Discord (I’m Silver Dee #8858, FB, or you can e-mail me at silversdreamland@gmail.com. I do have a few prizes in mind as of right now, but I haven’t completely decided (as I JUST now thought to put this Along together.

 

  1. The Great Podcaster Craft Together
      1. Prizes
          1. 4 total copies of My “Proud To Be Me” or “Wizarding World Tour” patterns (1 per quarter). These will now be sent direct PDFs here or via e-mail. (this will be your choice)
          2. A free pattern from JavaPurl Designs will be given away per month (12 total) These will now be sent direct PDFs here or via e-mail. (this will be your choice) Please go to https://www.javapurldesigns.com/ and choose which pattern you would like. I’ll send it over to either your DMs or via e-mail as soon as possible.
          3. A $10 gift card to the wool warehouse in your area (Webs, etc) This is in place of the weekly Pattern prizes I used to do on Ravelry. These will all be sent out to everyone at the end of the year (in case there are multiple times an individual wins. This way the winners can make one purchase, instead of multiple)
          4. Every 50 FO’s, I will no longer be giving away patterns on Rav for the reasons I mentioned above. Sorry. I can’t in good conscience spend money on the site.
